There had been reports earlier that an illegal slaughter house was operating in the land of a person at Aithakumeru in Salettur village.As if to justify this, a woman named Gulabi who resides in Killambarepadu which is just a stone’s throw away from Aithakumeru has made this allegation at the Kolnad-Salettur Gram Sabha.

Her allegation is that women of Aithakumeru and Killambare Padpu who went to the river side for washing clothes saw cattle heads and other animal wastes in the water

Several other villagers too joined Gulabi on the issue. Responding to the complaint, the Gram Panchayat President has assured to visit the spot and initiate suitable measures. It may be recalled here that Karavali Ale had recently carried a report about the illegal cattle transportation in Salettur area since some time.
